We cruised up and down the streets of Guerneville and fell into Boon at 8:45... and they close at 9:00! But the staff welcomed us in, and we had a leisurely glass of wine, ordered, and were graciously served and not rushed at all. My husband had the grass fed burger (sorry, no bacon that night), and I had the flash fried brussels sprouts and mac and cheese. The sprouts were over-dressed with vinegar, but the mac and cheese was the best I've had in a restaurant. Smooth and tasty cheese sauce, wild mushrooms, and truffled bread crumbs. Restrained, delicious, hit the spot. Small place with some outdoor seating, comfortable, stands out in this river town.

Located on Main street in the heart of Guerneville, the little laid-back town that’s home to the annual Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival, Boon Eat & Drink is an intimate must-visit restaurant that features primarily organic, creative, locally sourced (some from their own gardens), fresh, seasonal cuisine. All of their wines come from the Russian River valley and all of their beers are from Sonoma or Mendocino. This is the second time my wife and I have eaten here. Together we had the beet salad (featuring three different beets, goat cheese, hazelnuts, and a light citrus vinaigrette sauce with a touch of mint); mac & cheese with wild mushrooms and truffle bread crumbs; a crispy halibut sandwich with cabbage slaw, pickled radish, coriander aioli, and truffle fries; and “flash fried” brussel sprouts. We paired the meal with a Banshee Sauvignon Blanc and an Inman Pinot Noir Rose. Everything was excellent. The food was perfectly prepared, light and flavorful and the wines were fruity, fresh and bone dry. To top it all off we split the bread pudding with currants, citrus zest, vanilla crème anglaise, and caramel and a small French press pot of coffee. I after a morning of visiting wineries, I really can’t think of a more enjoyable, relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

hands down the best restaurant in Guerneville, and one of my favorite in the bay area. Herbs and vegetables grown in their garden, home made ketchup, truffle fries and so on.

I always take a break to eat at this place!

Mac and cheese, burrata - all so fresh and yummy! A tiny hole in the wall with attentive staff and tasty food. The truffle fries were the most memorable! Definitely would return!

Boon was recommended by several winery staff's as a must stop during our recent trip. We (2 couples) visited Boon for lunch and were amazed by the menu selections. The halibut sandwich and palanta lasagna were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Great food and value. Would recommend highly! Also try the alberino (spelling?) white wine.
